A loan of $875 helped to buy food, drinks, fruits, vegetables and more for his convenience store.

Herminio's story

Herminio is 69 years old, married, and lives with his wife and daughter. In total, he has three adult children, who are now all independent.
Herminio worked since he was young as a gas station attendant, and now he is retired. Through years of saving, he was able to build his house and start a small convenience store. Thanks to the way in which he treats his customers, he has been able to build a loyal clientele. He has been able to grow his business and can now offer his customers a wider variety of products. Herminio says that everything he has now he obtained through a lot of sacrifices and hard work from both him and his family.

He is requesting this loan to buy food, drinks, fruits, vegetables, and more, so that he can continue offering a good service to his customers, and to continue offering them a wide variety of goods as he has always done.
